IHRC is worried that the Nigerian army could be about to mount an attack on the Islamic Movement of Nigeria similar to one last year that resulted in the massacre of at least 1000 civilians.

Residents in the northern city of Potiskum, Yobe State, report that military vehicles including including armoured personnel carriers surrounded the IMN centre there before leaving without incident.

The military deployment follows several successive days of military build-up in the area with soldiers intimidating locals by chanting war songs.

Please forward any responses you receive to IHRC on info@ihrc.org.
